World’s First Clear Samsung Galaxy S8 Made Possible With Some Sacrifices

JerryRigEverything, the man who is now better known for his penchant for destructing smartphones and/or turning them into clear-back examples is back at it again. This time, he took a perfectly new Samsung Galaxy S8 and gave it a gleaming, transparent back. And how did he managed to pull it off? Well, from the looks of it, it wasn’t a simple task and it is surely a ‘mod’ that should not be attempted by anyone who have absolutely no idea of what they are doing. In other words, please don’t this at all. Even though we don’t encourage the act of smartphone cruelty, we can’t deny it is pretty dope to be able to see the inside of a Samsung Galaxy S8.

Samsung’s New Gear 360 Boasts True 4K Videoing And Also, A Handle

The Samsung Gear 360 is cute, functional, but it has one ‘flaw’: it is a freaking ball which, frankly speaking, makes handling it a tad awkward. It does have a tripod which you can close up the leg to use it as a handle, but you don’t have to settle for less. Apparently, Samsung realized this and has, on its new Gear 360, incorporate a handle which makes the device looks like Eve from Wall-E on diet and also with no limbs, obviously. Samsung made little effort to introduce the new Gear 360 at March 29’s event, but all you really need to know is, it is now more awesome.

DeX Wants To Turn Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Into A Desktop Computer

Attempts to turn Android smartphone into a computer isn’t new, but somehow, Samsung made it a big thing. Or maybe it is a big deal because, Samsung DeX, the device that will enable the Android-based desktop experience, will turn the newly announced Galaxy S8 and S8+, and provide an experience that no other makers have done. To be honest, I almost dismissed as just another attempt to do so. However, in DeX’s case, docking the S8 or S8+ will enable seamlessly access to apps, edit documents, browse the web, watch videos, reply to messages and more, and doing so with a much larger display and the convenience offered by an actual keyboard and mouse. Continue reading DeX Wants To Turn Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Into A Desktop Computer

Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8+ Announced, Sports Expansive Bezel-less Display

So, the moment loyal Samsung fans have been waiting for has just came and went. We are talking about the much anticipated new Galaxy device, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S8+. I don’t even know where to begin. Perhaps, I will just go with the hard details like the design and tech specs cos’ software is, as always, Samsung kind of heavy and I suspect, many functions will not be touched by average users. Now, on with the designs and specs. First foremost, Samsung Mobile is certainly a certified curved screen addict because the S8 and the larger ‘+’ model are sticking to the ‘safe’ curve screen design, but it is now bezel-less and has a fancy name called Infinity display. Continue reading Samsung Galaxy S8 And S8+ Announced, Sports Expansive Bezel-less Display

Samsung Announced Galaxy Tab S3 and Galaxy Book With HDR Support

As Samsung’s mobile division is dealing with the aftermath of fiery phone, alleged exploding washing machine and shady dealings, it is business as usual for other aspects of the business and that’s a good thing because, we won’t want to see another good competition goes down the drain. Speaking of business as usual, that already has been happening non-stop as the company tries to cope with unfortunate blunder (in the history of modern gadgets, that is) and it is no exception for Mobile World Congress 2017, happening in Barcelona, where the electronics giant has announced a new trio of tablets, Galaxy Tab S3 and Galaxy Books. Continue reading Samsung Announced Galaxy Tab S3 and Galaxy Book With HDR Support

Samsung Brings S-Pen To Its New Chromebooks

This is the latest pair of Chromebooks from Samsung. Being one of the early Chromebook maker, Samsung is certainly no stranger to Chrome OS powered hardware, but the duo announced yesterday is different; they are designed with Google Play in mind which means, in addition to Chrome OS staples, you will be able to experience Android apps on these two devices too. While being a laptop/tablet hybrid isn’t new, it does boast a Chromebook first: a stylus. Now, that’s something refreshing, particularly because it is no ordinary stylus; it is a digitized pen, meaning your S pen experience on Samsung’s smartphones is now available on Chrome OS and this also means you get to enjoy pressure sensitivity when making its 0.7mm pen tip do your bidding. Continue reading Samsung Brings S-Pen To Its New Chromebooks

Meet Notebook Odyssey, Samsung’s First-ever Gaming Laptop

Samsung isn’t exactly the name for gaming hardware, but that hasn’t stop this other South Korean electronics giant, Samsung, from diving into it. The company’s first-ever gaming laptop, Notebook Odyssey made its debut yesterday and boy, does it look all business. It even as a specially designed logo to show it does indeed mean business (think: ASUS ROG). Coming at 17.3-inch and 15.6-inch, Notebook Odyssey is, expected, Samsung kind of sleek and touting quite a few delightful features which include an advanced cooling and ventilation system known as HexaFlow Vent, 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GTX1050 graphics with up to 4GB VRAM, up to 300 nits backlit anti-glare FHD display, ergonomically curved keycaps, backlit WASD keys (15-inch model only), and customizable backlit color of individual keycaps (17-inch model).

Modder Wins As YouTube Unblocked GTA V Galaxy Note 7 Bomb Mod Video

Remember the hilarious game mod that turns the Stick Bomb in GTA V into a Galaxy Note 7? Yes. That video. The video wouldn’t have drawn much attention of the Internet if not for the take down notice by YouTube filed by Samsung Electronics America. The incident goes to show how petty Samsung is amidst what-could-be the tech blunder of the decade. As mentioned in a post last week, Samsung wasn’t amused a bit and had abused YouTube’s reporting tool for infringement materials to prevent others from watching this clear-as-day parody video. Continue reading Modder Wins As YouTube Unblocked GTA V Galaxy Note 7 Bomb Mod Video

Clearly, Samsung Is Not Amused By GTA V Galaxy Note 7 Bomb Mod

Since the fiasco of the exploding Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the subsequent failed replacement, the Galaxy Note 7 has been the victim of a barrage of Internet memes with hilarity that could rival Kanye West sleeping meme which, you may recall, took the Internet by storm back in February. The Internet sure knows how to rub it in and if we may say so ourselves, pretty damn good at it too. While Internet memes provided us with much fun at the expense of someone else’s misery, one Grand Theft Auto V modder’s poke at the whole Samsung boohoo takes the biscuit.
